In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, and sugar. Stir together with a fork.
Cut vegan shortening into tablespoon size cubes and then using a fork combine together until crumbly.
Pour in milk and vanilla.
Stir until combined.
Use hands to form a dough.
Lay a piece of parchment paper down and sprinkle with flour. Lay dough down and sprinkle with a touch of flour on top.
Roll out dough into an 18x24 inch rectangle. Tip: If you don't have a lot of counter space, split dough in half and roll out each piece into a 9x12 inch rectangle. Cut the dough vertically from the longest side every 3 inches. You should end up with 8 strips of dough. *If doing the 2 9x12 rectangles, cut each piece into 4 strips.
Lightly brush the dough with vegan milk.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Once cherry filling has cooled completely, fill the lower 4 inches of dough with mixture, about 1-2 tablespoons. Leave 1/2 inch between each side.
Fold the top half of the dough over on top of the bottom.
Firmly press them together trying not to leave any air pockets.
Use a fork and press along all the edges.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush the tops with more vegan milk.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top and around edges.
Place on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
Make the icing by adding powdered sugar to a bowl and whisk in a teaspoon of water at a time until slightly runny.
Add in the vanilla and whisk again.
Dip the tops of the pop tarts into the icing or drizzle on top.
Add sprinkles if desired.
